Diamond point etching needles are amazing. I just bought this etching needle, and I am completely fascinated with how easy it is to draw onto metal. I've always avoided drypoint opting for etching, but I'm trying to get more health concious and drypoint is very safe. The tip of the needle is so tiny that I can barley see it, but that is good because I broke the tip off of my last needle.
